For the 1000 de la Gauchetière
Standing at more than 50 stories, the silhouette of the 1000 De La Gauchetère stands out in the landscape of Montreal. This iconic post-modern building hosts offices, events and conferences. The lighting enhances the verticality and imposing mass of the building in a sober and elegant way. The monumental aspect of the architecture is supported by the finesse and the precision of the light beams that cut the volume. The new lighting significantly reduces energy consumption and maintenance costs. The illumination offers different scenarios for sporting, social and cultural events.
